think it is useful but not absolutely essential to the overall relationship. just getting the team together on the american side, which hampered its first few months, but i would not myself think that this was critical to the issue of inking forward. i think that has to be done to some degree by the prime minister and the president. they have little time together, so it is very much something that needs to be included in the regular meetings at the foreign secretary level and then at the theor official level, like political director and others in the foreign office. you have this overview of the overall relationship. >> well, that takes me rather neatly onto my next point, which is that sometimes we make a mistake in this country in seeing american foreign-policy as being monolithic, because you have a number of sources. you have got the white house, that you mentioned. you have got the state department. you have got the senate, the foreign relations committee. c, and youot the ns have got the pentagon. do you think that we have difficulty here in formulating policy when there are
